Robert Stiles, Four years under Marse Robert, Chapter 11: religious life of Lee's Army (search)
y back to the guns, but with a new strength, a deep trust and peace in our souls, and we laid down with our arms about each other and slept as quietly as little children — as indeed we were, God's dear soldier children, who had felt His gentle assurance that all was and would be well. The facts relating to Allan's conversion and death are so remarkable that I would scarcely dare record them were it not that I have before me a written memorandum of them prepared while I was a prisoner at Johnson's Lsland in the spring of 1865. Allan was, as before intimated, rather prone to introspection, but his mental processes were so definite and his verbal expression of them so clear that one experienced no difficulty in understanding him and always felt assured that he thoroughly understood himself. A few days before Billy's return, Allan and I were washing our clothes, and I, as usual, talking, when he abruptly and almost impatiently interrupted me, saying substantially that, while I ev

last picture connected with my desperate ride is of the finish and of the doughty division commander in whose behalf I had taken it. He was sometimes called Alleghany Johnson and Fence-rail Johnson, because of his having been wounded at the battle of Alleghany, and, in consequence, walking with a very perceptible limp and aiding tJohnson, because of his having been wounded at the battle of Alleghany, and, in consequence, walking with a very perceptible limp and aiding the process with a staff about as long as a rail and almost as thick as the club of Giant Despair. He was a heavy, thick-set man, and when I saw him was on foot and hobbling along with the help of this gigantic walking-cane. It was toward the gloaming and I did not see him very distinctly, but remember that when I gasped out the muzzle almost touched my body. How long I lay and he stood there, or where we went after we recovered breath and motion, I have not the faintest recollection. Johnson's attack was made not long before dark, but it was not vigorously supported, except by two of Early's brigades, and it failed to accomplish any important result.

rd pressed, with clubbed musket in his left hand and a long club (a grub gathered from a farmyard) in his right, which he brandished over his head, while in thunder tones he encouraged his men to attack, he joined them in rushing upon the foe and driving them, with the bayonet and with severe loss, down the mountain side in full retreat. His heroic and inspiring presence everywhere increased the valorous ardor of his men. His conduct on that day won for him, for all time, the name of Alleghany Johnson. Secretary Benjamin wrote to Brig.-Gen. Edward Johnson, on the 23d of December: The report of the engagement of the 13th inst., in which your gallant command met and repulsed a vastly superior force with a steady valor worthy of the highest admiration, has been communicated by me to the President, and I rejoice to be made the medium of communicating to you and to your officers and men the expression of his thanks and of the great gratification he had experienced at your success.
He spoke of the gratifying manifestation of popular regard made in honor of his chief. The applause of his country men was one of the things that most move the heart of the soldier in the hour of trial and danger. He then alluded to the long account that Gen. Morgan had to settle with the Yankees. He had ordered his regiments to elect each a barber, and hereafter to shave every Yankee they caught. [Cheers and laughter.] Gen. Edward Johnson--being introduced by the Mayor as Gen. Alleghany Johnson--said that he had been happy to meet to-day Gen. John H. Morgan. In paying respect to him we showed our condemnation of the enemy who had maltreated him. The enemy had shaved Gen. Morgan's head, [laughter,] but he was glad to see that his hair had grown out. Gen. Morgan having again come forward and bowed to the multitude, by whom he was enthusiastically cheered, he was then re-conducted to his carriage and was escorted by the military and citizens to his apartments at the Ball
Two hundred and fifty Dollars reward. --Runaway, during the holidays, my boy Gerard, about 26 years old, 5 feet 5 or 6 inches high, dark gingerbread color, bushy head of hair, very likely and genteel in appearance, and well dressed. No doubt he is in company with his brother, Plummer, whom I sold to Mr Johnson a few weeks since, and who ran away from him about the same time. I will pay the above reward for Gerard if delivered to me here, or lodged in any jail where I can get him. David N Walker. [ja 7--6t*]
